Champagne Glasses are a form of stemware designed specifically to enhance the drinking of champagne. The two most common forms are the flute and coupe. In each the stem allows the drinker to hold the glass without affecting the temperature of the drink, making them readily adaptable to consuming other sparkling wines and certain beers. The champagne flute is a stem glass with either a tall tapered conical shape or elongated slender bowl. The flute was developed along with other wine stemware in the early 1700s as the preferred shape for sparkling wine as materials for drinking vessels shifted from metal and ceramic to glassware. Initially, the flute was tall, conical and slender; by he 20th century, preferences changed from straight-sided glass to one which curved inward slightly near the lip. The coupe is a shallow, broad-bowled, saucer shaped stemmed glass generally capable of containing 4-8 fl oz of liquid.
